I'm not sure "Dark dipper" is exactly what they're going for; maybe it's a play on words/themes or maybe in Chinese it's something?

    Kieiken is demon (oni) + shadow + fist. All together it'd be Dark Dipper Demon Shadow Fist.
    After doing some research, it seems "Mei" refers to darkness like in the sense of the underworld/Hades. So, I would guess that it's supposed to be like the evil version of the Big Dipper, I suppose?

    But yeah, that sounds about right. Thank you so much, Foolio. :)

    It can mean darkness in the sense of death or the underworld, but it also just means plain old dark. No worries though.
